Commitment Again

Morning Word
I wish I could tell you where to find the perfect person but I can’t. I wish I could tell you that even when you do find the perfect person, the both of you will always get along and never have one disagreement together, but that wouldn’t be true. Love is a commitment and not a feeling. And if both of you can’t remain committed to each other when tough days present themselves, then how strong is your love for each other? I’ve seen so many people prematurely give up on relationships and throw everything away because the mood changed. I’ve seen so many people push the person away who loved them because they didn’t feel like doing the work on the hard days. If you think you can fall in love with someone without having your commitment to each other tested, then you are truly mistaken. If you truly want to be in a relationship with someone who you can win with in life, then you have to be strong enough to overcome a loss with that person every once in a while as well.

Commitment

Morning Word
Whoever you decide to be with, just make sure that you are not the only one committed to the relationship. There is nothing more worse than being with someone who doesn’t care about investing in the relationship. So many people out here are stressing themselves out because they are the only one doing things to keep the relationship afloat. And I don’t care how much you love someone, a relationship will never reach its potential if you are the only one doing all of the heavy lifting. When it comes to love, we all were wired to feed off of each other’s energy. You can’t be the only one pouring; effort, care, love, support and encouragement, and continue to let the other person neglect their responsibility of returning reciprocity back to you. Please choose someone who will give you a return on your investment. Love functions better when you both move together like a team.

Someone Special

Morning Word
Having someone whose “love” will never leave, has to be one of the greatest feelings in the world. It’s amazing how someone can see the madness behind your flaws and still want to be a part of your life. The peace you feel never having to worry about your heart getting broken again, can’t be explained. When you have someone who is willing to stay by your side through all of your darkest days, that truly is a blessing. When you can always count on someone’s “love” and know that they will always be there for you, that’s when you know you have someone worth holding on to. When all they want to do is build a life with you and make beautiful memories, that’s when you really know that you have someone special in your life. When you can wake up in the morning and have their presence brighten your day before the sun even comes up, that’s when you really know that you have something special. Hold on to that person. People like that don’t come around often.

Brand New Day

Morning Word
Stop beginning your brand new days with yesterday’s problems. Don’t let one bad situation or one bad event, rob you of your joy more than it should. Dust yourself off. Realize that you are an unbelievable and amazing person, and then go out here and be the greatest version of yourself that you have always strived to be. IG@woodtheinspiration

Someone Nice

Morning Word
It’s nice to have someone you can celebrate small victories with when you have been losing for such a long time. It’s nice to have someone who can make you forget all the pain you have been through when their love comes at the right time. To be loved by the right person genuinely and unconditionally is truly one of the best feelings in the world. The older you get, the more you end up cherishing the small things in life. You end up cherishing having someone worth waking up to. You end up cherishing comfortable silences with deep talks and slow back rubs. You end up cherishing making beautiful memories together. You end up cherishing finally having someone who understands you on a level that no one else has before. You end up appreciating the fact that even when you both disagree on certain things, your love for each other will always bring you both back to each other. The older you get, the more you end up wanting the things out of life that money can’t buy…. like being in love with the right person.

Great Women

Morning Word
You really can’t put a price on having a great woman in your life. Sometimes as men, we can be so driven on doing everything alone that we’ll start to forget how much a great woman can truly make our lives easier. Great women love to HELP (Heal, Encourage, Love and Push you). It’s in a woman’s DNA to help in various capacities. They will help keep you on track when you start to lose focus. They will help keep you motivated when doubt tries to creep in. They will help keep you lifted above negativity by speaking positive affirmations directly into you. They will pray over you and keep you protected. I guess what I’m trying to say is, a great woman will be your rib and help you breathe easier in life.

We Both

Morning Word
We both meet in the middle. We both compromise. We both make sacrifices. We both support each other and encourage each other. We both hold each other down and lift each other up. We both give unselfishly. We both argue. We both say “I’m sorry”. We both forgive. We both never stop trying to make each other happy. We both remain committed and loyal to each other. We both make each other a priority. We both laugh. We both smile. We both weather the storms and never let the other person fight their battles alone. We both never give up on each other. We both never stop loving each other.

Wait

Morning Word
You owe it to yourself to wait on someone who is worth your love and attention. I believe that you can give yourself a better chance at succeeding in your next relationship just by being more patient. It’s a lot of people out here looking to waste your time. It’s a lot of people out here looking to use you just to see what they can get out of you. Some people out here aren’t looking for love, they are looking for someone they can use for their own agenda just to get ahead. You owe it to yourself to take as much time as you can exploring someone’s heart. The last thing you need is another fool in your life putting you through the same things that the last fool did. Wait for someone who you feel like is truly making a dedicated effort to be in your life. Wait for someone who has the patience to wait for you to open up about your scars. Wait for someone who truly listens to understand you, and wants to reciprocate that same energy right back to you. Wait for someone special, someone who the rest of the world doesn’t know about.

Your Love

Morning Word
I just want you to see the beauty in your love again. I don’t want you letting the negative experiences of your past, controlling how you give and receive love for the rest of your life. Sometimes you have to move on and believe that there is better for you out there even when you can’t really see it. We have to learn how to take our pain and turn it into purpose. We have to learn how to grow through what we go through, so that we can be better individuals in life. Stop giving so much power to your heartbreaks. Never give anyone so much power over you that, they start making you think about yourself in negative ways. Whether you are in a relationship or not, you have to have a mindset that your presence alone will lift the spirits of any room that you walk into. Someone out there is waiting to appreciate your love. Someone out there is waiting to meet a person like you, so that they can show you what it’s really like to be treated the right way. Someone out there is waiting to build a life with you and give you everything you need when it comes to love. IG@woodtheinspiration

Love

Morning Word
I never wanted to be the person who allowed my pain from the past to dictate how I embraced the possibility of receiving new love in the future. I never wanted to be so powerless that I gave someone else the power to make me never believe in love again. Love is truly one of the greatest things two people can share with each other. Just because it didn’t work out with someone in your past, that still doesn’t mean that love is not worth having one day with someone special. Try to pull out the positives from ended relationships. Sometimes the only reason you cross paths with someone is to learn a few things before you actually meet the one you are supposed to be with. Sometimes in life things end, so that beautiful things can begin.
